Doing Our Bit For The Environment

Low Carbon Workspace Wilson Browne SolicitorsThere’s no ‘green washing‘ here:

We can’t pretend we’ve got solar panels on the roof of every office; wind turbines in the car parks as part of a micro-generation strategy; or fancy water purification systems storing rain water and purifying it for use.

What we can say, is that where possible we have tried (and continue to try) to minimise our carbon footprint and the impact we have on the environment. The firm recently made the switch to LED lighting which has a positive environmental impact as well as being cost efficient.

Added to that, our electricity supplier claims in their most recent audit to have renewables account for 96.3% of its supply versus a UK average of 29.04%.

Through our recently introduced salary sacrifice car scheme, a number of employees have made the switch to EVs (electric vehicles) which helps to further reduce the carbon footprint.

Happy Easter from Wilson Browne Solicitors and Miss Northamptonshire GalaxyWilson Browne Solicitors Easter Donation Northampton General Hospital

Wilson Browne Solicitors joined forces with Saffron Corcoran, the reigning Miss Northamptonshire Galaxy, to bring some Easter goodies to the patients, parents and staff on the children’s ward at Northampton General Hospital.

Saffron visited Wilson Browne Solicitors and was presented with the donation by Chloe Lake, a paralegal in our Residential Conveyancing team.

Over a period of two months, Saffron worked to collect nearly 100 Easter Eggs, as well as toys and books. Alongside this, Wilson Browne Solicitors kindly donated a selection of new toys for the activity room, to ensure that anyone staying has an array of options to keep their spirits up.

On Sunday 10th April, Saffron (along with Wilson Bear – can you spot him?!) visited Northampton General Hospital to make the donation, meeting Kaylee and Rachel of the children’s ward, who were thrilled with the collection.

Saffron said:

It couldn’t be more fitting that I am donating this week to Northampton General Hospital…the staff are incredible and deserve all the praise. We are so lucky to have the NHS and I hope that this collection puts smiles on the faces of the staff, patients and parents.

Saffron will be representing Northamptonshire at the United Kingdom Galaxy Pageants competition in November of this year, and hopes to bring the UK title back to Northamptonshire. We wish her the best of luck!

Helping Higham Ferrers Nursery and Infant School

Wilson Browne are committed to supporting the local community and charities. Helping Higham Ferrers Nursery and Infant School

We contacted Higham Ferrers Nursery and Infant School a while ago to see how we could help them and what would make a good contribution to the children.

Mrs Betts suggested craft materials would make a very welcomed donation and we put together a couple of boxes of materials including paper, pens and Play Doh.

Sam Brett from the Residential Conveyancing team and Stacy Ludlam the from Private Client team presented Mrs Bett’s with the gifts.

Mrs Betts said “Thank you very much for your kind offer and we would certainly like to take you up on it!!  School budgets are tighter than ever and the generosity of local businesses makes a real difference to our children. ”

Pro Bono Work For Clifton Playgroup Completed

Wilson Browne Solicitors are committed to Corporate Social Responsibility; acting as a responsible employer within the community and ensuring that we put something back. Our recent instructions to act for Clifton Playgroup Limited on a pro bono basis were testament to exactly that.

Partner Tom Warrender, acted for Clifton Playgroup Limited in relation to their new lease of the playgroup premises at Clifton on Dunsmore Primary School in Rugby. The client’s current lease was due to expire at the end of July and they did not benefit from what is known as statutory security of tenure meaning they had no statutory right to the grant of a renewal of their lease.  The premises are obviously fundamental to the operation of the playgroup and Tom was able to successfully assist the playgroup in negotiating a new two year renewal lease of the premises.

Tom commented “Clifton Playgroup is an integral part of the local community and it was an absolute pleasure to be able to assist them in this matter. The playgroup, as with many similar organisations, do fantastic work on extremely limited budgets and so to be able to assist them in this project on a pro bono basis was particularly pleasing.”

Barbara Spiby, Playgroup Manager and Board Member of Clifton Playgroup Limited, commented, “To Tom I just want to say thank you. It’s been tricky and without your guidance and expertise we would still be trying to sort this. You have been fantastic!!! Thank you very much. “You have been a great support. Leading us through a difficult situation and you have supported our lack of knowledge, with such kindness, consideration and patience. I really can’t thank you enough.”

Clifton Playgroup provides quality early years education for children aged between 2½ and 4 years in and around the parish of Clifton Upon Dunsmore, Rugby.  Further information can be found at

Northamptonshire Community Foundation.

Donation For Northamptonshire Charity To Reach People In Need This Winter.

We have teamed up with the Northamptonshire Community Foundation (NCF).

With many older and vulnerable people living alone, the public health crisis, the fuel crisis, and what seems like the never ending winter months Wilson Browne Solicitors has made a donation to the Northamptonshire Community Foundation’s Winter Well-being appeal.

The Foundation is the leading independent grant-making charity in the county and its annual Winter Well-being appeal has raised £235,000 since 2010 to protect some of the most vulnerable members of our communities.

(LEFT) Over £5000 has been donated by the firm which will be awarded in the form of grants to local community groups and small charities whose activities protect and help older and vulnerable people in supported environments.

(RIGHT) We also helped launch a fundraiser tackling food poverty and insecurity across the county, working with Northamptonshire Community Foundation which has  responded to

 alarming local and national statistics, and launched the Family Food Aid Appeal in May.
A grant-making charity is “so grateful” for a generous donation that kickstarted its latest fundraiser tackling food poverty and insecurity across the county.

Wilson Browne Solicitors was the first to make a donation of more than £750 ahead of the appeal launch, as part of their annual contributions to worthy local causes.

Other Fundraising

Wilson Browne supports a number of other causes including: Jeans for Genes, and Movember. In previous years our corporate charity programme has also supported charities such as MacMillan Nurses, The Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance and The Cynthia Spencer Hospice.

Supporting Youth Sport: Corby & District, Youth Cricket League

The Wilson Browne Youth League covers the clubs in the Kettering & Corby District with leagues for Under 11, 13, 15 and 17.

As long time sponsors, we were pleased to attend the annual awards, attended by Ika Částka who has supported the league for some time, in no small part due to her professional and personal interest owing to a family love and participation in the game – both of her sons have played in the League.

Ika comments:

As a local employer, we have always made it our aim to put something back in the community and that includes supporting numerous local sports grounds, clubs and various leagues.

Whether supporting under-privileged children in the Gambia, being a main sponsor for the Pride In Northamptonshire Awards and similar, or simply lending support to local activities, it always give me great pleasure and  pride that Wilson Browne Solicitors is able to help.
